Disaster Prevention

About Disaster Mitigation

Disaster mitigation measures are those that eliminate or reduce the impacts and risks of hazards through proactive measures taken before an emergency or disaster occurs.

An all-hazards emergency management approach looks at all potential risks and impacts, natural and human-induced (intentional and non-intentional) to ensure that decisions made to mitigate against one type of risk do not increase our vulnerability to other risks.

Types of disaster mitigation

Disaster mitigation measures may be structural or non-structural. Mitigation activities should incorporate the measurement and assessment of the evolving risk environment. Activities may include the creation of comprehensive, pro-active tools that help decide where to focus funding and efforts in risk reduction.

Other examples of mitigation measures include:

  •     Hazard mapping
  •     Adoption and enforcement of land use and zoning practices
  •     Implementing and enforcing building codes
  •     Flood plain mapping
  •     Reinforced tornado safe rooms
  •     Burying of electrical cables to prevent ice build-up
  •     Raising of homes in flood-prone areas
  •     Disaster mitigation public awareness programs
  •     Insurance programs
